DÉCOUVREZ LE PETIT DERNIER DE L'ÉQUIPE ROCCO LE CHIEN

Rocco the dog

Rocco est un Cocker Spaniel d’à peine un an dont le travail consiste à contrôler la qualité des fûts à la tonnellerie. Les fûts sont fabriqués depuis des années par des artisans-experts qui utilisent des techniques traditionnelles pour protéger au mieux le whisky Grant’s. Le bois est un matériau naturel et la distillation du whisky est un processus biologique. Notre mission chez Grant’s est de s’assurer que tout est parfait à mesure que le whisky vieillit dans les fûts de chêne.

Le sens de l’odorat d’un chien comme Rocco est quarante fois plus développé que celui d’un humain. Rocco a été spécialement sélectionné et entraîné pour détecter l’odeur de toute anomalie à mesure que le whisky mûrit. Une fois que Rocco a vérifié la qualité du bois dans la tonnellerie, il se balade dans toute la distillerie pour s’assurer que tout est en ordre.

Le Maître Distillateur

Expert de la distillation de notre précieux liquide. Le chiffre « trois » a toujours été important pour Grant's : des trois types de bois différents des fûts dans lesquels notre whisky est vieilli, aux trois ingrédients clés que sont l'eau d’Écosse, l'air et l'orge.

En passant par notre bouteille triangulaire, à trois faces. C'est en 1957 qu'Hans Schleger a créé la bouteille triangulaire Grant's désormais iconique. Cette bouteille emblématique met non seulement en valeur la qualité et la couleur du whisky Grant's, mais elle est également techniquement adaptée pour son exportation dans le monde entier.

OURSTORY

Our story

Six generations of Grants have stood together through thick and thin to hold the title of Scotland’s oldest continuously family-run, blended whisky makers. But we couldn’t have done it without a little help along the way.

William grant

WILLIAM GRANT

In William Grant’s journey from cow herder to founding father of one of the world’s most loved Scotch brands, it’s fair to say he had a little help along the way.

It was in 1887 when William Grant opened his first distillery in Scotland with the help of his seven sons and two daughters.

William Grant knew a thing or two about a good workforce. George Grant was his maltman, Charlie Grant operated the tuns, Alec Grant was his still-man, and his youngest daughter Meta? Well, the seven year old brought the boys lunch. Now that's a family business.

SHARING WITH THE WORLD

William Grant’s son-in-law, Charles Gordon, became the company’s first salesman. Knocking on doors, trying to make his first sale. He called at 180 establishments before finding his first customer. Which may have had something to do with the fact that the 181st was the first place he gave a sample to.

This job saw him sailing to the Far East, which took months at a time. Luckily he never had to take much home again. So the return leg was always a little speedier.

Prohibition

PROHIBITION

During prohibition most distillery owners shut their doors, but not William Grant. He went against the grain and actually increased production. Guess he knew the world wouldn’t be able to resist great whisky forever.

TODAY

It just goes to show that when the right people stand together, great things happen.

Six generations later, we’re still family owned. From the highly skilled Coopers who tend our casks to the distillers and maturation experts – Grant’s Whisky stays true to William Grant’s original, closely guarded recipe.
